A Date With Tony and the Holiday Run Down
Don't tell DP, but I have a date this morning.

We've not gotten together in a long time. Until now I've not really missed him, but Tony's voice has been echoing in my head lately.

I guess it's the whole "new year, new you" thing that permeates every advertisement and blog post you browse lately.

So, in a very few short minutes, after donning my extra supportive sports bra and other sweat-worthy exercise togs, I will be increasing my heart rate and facing the challenge that is Tony . . . including the bonus AB RIPPER 2oo . . .

If you hear my groaning from the comfort of your own home, please call 911 and send them to my neighborhood.

Before I head off into the land of the physically challenged, I thought I'd do a quick update of:

"What I did over my Christmas Vacation"

  • We spent this one sans extended family, so it was fairly quiet.
  • We watched tons of videos, thanks to a grandma who couldn't come to visit with a broken arm, but could send us things she'd recorded from Hallmark Channel (pass the tissues, please)
  • I made the most fabulous Christmas dinner ever, and I spent the entire day in my new candy cane jammies. I wholeheartedly recommend doing Christmas as a jammie day.
  • Then the crud set in, and we went through/used up/had to buy:

  • 6 boxes of Kleenex
  • 4 bags of Cough drops. We like these.
  • 1 space heater
  • 2 boxes of Mucinex
  • 1 box of Vapor Strips
  • Showers with this stuff
  • 2 visits with the Urgent Care clinic
  • 2 prescriptions
  • 4 bottles of cough syrup (you know it's bad when the kids start asking for this)
  • Multiple sprays with the Saline Solution
  • and all the patience the mama had to give.
Boy, am I glad to have the togetherness of the holidays over! It was fun, but with the onset of illness came a mental countdown for the mama of how many hours until the break was finished.

Speaking of finished, I think my stalling must be over. Tony is whispering my name.

I'll be crawling back later to let you know about my fantastic chocolate chip cookie success . . . I'm sure you'll be holding your breath.

Have a great day!

I love that you show Tony and tease us with the chocolate chip cookies in the same post, Pam. I like how you keep it real girl!

I don't who that Tony is but I sure like how he looks! LOL *wink* Probably makes workin' out a little easier when there is someone easy on the eyes leading, huh? *nudge, nudge*

Glad everyone is feeling better though!
